we are starting making some example for the next generation of Symbolic
application. I want to share with you our idea about it and ask to
everybody if could be good or if you have any other (better) idea.
What we want to make is a modular application (at the moment the
programming language is not so important... so you can partecipate to
the concept with what you want ;)). So Symbolic should be a simple
"core" and all other functions will be added with "plugins".
What the "core" surely know and could do is "making activity with other
machine" (like the current version)... but all features (for example
virtual machine controller; cluster capability; ...) must be something
that we could make external.
Any plugin could "inject" some functions on "existing" pages or
"business class"... so, for example, if I add the "cluster plugin" I
could see in admin menu a new voice to controll cluster, on machine
creation I'll have a new combo box and a new voice in the combo to
define the type of machine.
What I'm working on at the moment is a way to extend the java base
classloader to create a structure like I've described in this mail.
If any of you has any idea about what I proposed and/or wants to propose
a simple "pluginable" application (python, groovy, java, perl(:S), ...)
is welcome!! :)
Let me know what do you think about this idea and specially if you have
Have a nice day
